Emulex Heads Backwards At 80 MPH
Commentary  |  10/27/2009  | 
Today Emulex announced the general availability of its "UCNA" to channel partners.

The Truth About The FCC Proposed Rules On Net Neutrality
Commentary  |  10/27/2009  | 
Ever since the FCC announced their proposed rules on net neutrality, there has been massive misinformation from news outlets, commentators, politicians, and political groups. The proposed rulings repeatedly state that the provisions are subject to network management, don't impede law enforcement or emergency preparedness and don't require providers to allow illegal activity, such as copyright infringement or pirating. Anyone who says differently is either misinformed or lying.

Commentary  |  10/24/2009  | 
Visiting vendors and talking to product managers is the only reason I go to shows. On occasion, I participate in a panel or give a presentation, but what I really want to do is see what vendors have cooking. SuperComm, while not an enterprise show, has quite a few vendors that service both carriers and enterprises, and often products tend to flow from the carrier to enterprise market as bandwidth demands rise. Keeping an eye on what they are doing tells us where the enterprise may be heading.

Linesider Overdrive Automates Network Management
News  |  10/22/2009  | 
One of the thornier issues with building a dynamic infrastructure for a data center or campus LAN is creating a simple, robust, and reliable management system to configure network connectivity.

Traffic that matches patterns specified in a protocol's RFC are blasted at the device under test as rapidly as possible until the test finishes or the device rolls over and dies. It's a useful testing method for manufacturers who want to make sure their devices comply with the standards, but terribly limited for any other purpose. Mu Dynamics has introduced a new version of its Mu Testing Solution that focuses on testing for ca

Network Neutrality: Reconsidering Flat-Rate Internet Access
Commentary  |  10/20/2009  |
